Removing the door panel on your jetta is fairly simple. Also just so you know that there was a recall on the jetta because of a problem with the window coming off the tracks. You may want to check and see if your vehicle was covered. remove window handle by twisting ring on base of handle and pulling off. Snap off cover plate on door handle and remove 2 outside screws on handle. Remove 3 or 4 screws on the bottom of door panel,from bottom of panel push up and panel will become free. There are a few things connected to the panel that need to be removed, They all unplug from door but remember where they go and how they came apart. If you are just trying to put the window back in there are 2 holes with rubber covers,open those and roll window down until you see window clamps, put in window and do not overtighten.if you want to get to the track you need to remove window handle assembely, door latch assembely, and large plate on door.now everything is exposed,you will clearly see the track and how it comes off and on

I have a 2003 volkswagen jetta. i need to remove the glass on the front drivers side and front passenger side doors and replace it with new glass.after i remove the door panel how do i do this?


The panels have 3 t20 torx screws on the bottom and one philips head near the mirror. Under pull handles there are 3 philips on the drivers and 2 philips on the passengers sides. Pull the panels from the bottom and lift the panels up. There are 2 black rubber plugs in each door, pop each plug out and the glass is held in place to the clips on each side with either a 10 mm bolt or t30 torx bolt. Move the glass to the point where you can see the bolts, loosen, but don't remove the bolts. Once loose, you can pull the glass loose. Once loose, lower the window a bit, angle the rear of the glass up and pull it out. The glass may be epoxied in place, as VW had a problem with windows coming loose. If so, try to pop the rubber in the clamp loose (above the bolts you see through the holes) and reinstall it with the window removed.

Remove the little door nob thingy for lock and unlock it just screws off,, Then you have 6 Allen key bolts around the door trim, remove those. Then remove the door handle cover just pops off you may need a small flat blade screw driver. you have two big screws Philips head screws in there... Then remove your speaker cover then the speaker, then remove the speaker, then remove the speaker bracket, then lift the door panel out. The motors and the regulators for your windows are **** door man makes a good unit for them i replace all 4 of mine... They are expensive Partsgeek.com is the best price i could fine. Looked for 2 years in junk yards and posted adds for replacement parts don't wast your time its damn near impossible. cost me about 500 for the 2 front window motors and regulators and I only replaced the regulators on the back windows I think they were about 50 a peace.

1998 VW Jetta GLS Manual Trans. The driver side power window won't roll down. From the same switch the front passenger window won't up but will roll down. The passenger side switch works fine; passanger...


If you have a multimeter you can go to the underside of the master panel in the drivers door and independently check the switches for voltage or with no power to the switch assembly check for continuity. Good place to start. If you get continuity to through the switch then you need to check power to the window actuators in the doors.

Dismount door panel. VW Polo Net


Sounds like it is a broken window regulator. You will need to remove the door panel to fix it. Mine broke and I can actually pull the window up and it will stay until the vibrations of the freeway eventually make it slide back down again (this would be a temporary fix of course). Anyways, there are a couple screws behind the door handle I believe, and then some snaps around the edges, and some clips along the window line. You should get a Bentley's manual so you know exactly how to fix the window regular.

97 VW Jetta right rear power window off track


There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.
